In the spirit of Sister Corita Kent’s activist poster work, we’ll be creating art to agitate for social change through the miracle of printmaking. Now is the time to use your creativity to speak truth to power. If not you, who? If not now, when? We’ll combine letterpress and relief (linocut/woodcut) to make beautiful editions of handmade prints focused on the most urgent challenges facing society today.
Prerequisite: Letterpress experience is recommended
